THE INSOLVENCY PROFESSION’S biggest names danced the night away at a strictly come dancing style charity event.
For one night only eight couples battled it out for the glitterball trophy in aid of the cancer charity the Debbie Fund.
Taking the most amount of donations, therefore crowned winners, were Carolyn Jones from law firm MAB and Matt Bond, insolvency partner and MD of the London office of Duff & Phelps doing the jive. Narrowly missing out and taking second place was Deloitte partner Louise Brittain and MAB partner Andrew Bowden-Brown.
However, the 16 contestants managed to pull in £19,755 plus gift aid collectively.
TS managed to sneak a camera into rehearsal (pictured) but we were foiled from our lack of bribes to security on the night.
But, before we were hoisted out by our ankles, TS noticed the programme detailing the contestants biographies.
In particular Smith & Williamson’s Finbarr O’Connell’s biography read… “When he’s not shaving his chest and dancing, Finbarr is a director in Smith & Williamson’s restructuring department”.
More shockingly it adds: “By night he dreamt of being a dancer and used to practice in front of mirrors wearing long leg warmers.”
Oh Finbarr, you’re biography and Pulp Fiction re-enactment would have got our vote!
